Itty-Bitty Toys: How to Knit Animals, Dolls, and Other Playthings for Kidsby Susan B Anderson
Synopses & Reviews
Adorable hand-knit playthings, featuring clever twists on classics and enchanting reversibles and interactive toys.
Kids love toys, and toys you make yourself are extra-special. If you could buy these imaginative playthings in stores, they would fly off the shelves! This book features stuffed animals, including a luscious lamb and a gigantic giraffe, and finger-puppet fruits that will delight babies and toddlers. With step-by-step directions, clear diagrams and drawings, and gorgeous photographs, knitters of all levels will find it easy to make the Pull-Toy Mama Duck and Ducklings, the set of Russian nesting dolls, and the Princess and the Pea Set. Even older kids will enjoy these, as well as the Felted Bouncy Ball, a felted version of a Super Ball that's perfect for indoor play. A series of five reversible toys--a frog that turns into a turtle, a mouse that changes into a cat, an egg in a nest that transforms into a blue bird, and so on--showcases the creativity that makes Susan B. Anderson a rising star in the knitting world.
Kids love toys, and hand-made toys are extra-special. Step-by-step directions, clear diagrams and drawings, and gorgeous photographs help knitters of all levels find it easy to make creative hand-knit playthings.
